Carbon taxes are the left’s way to force you to use energy sources they believe are better. Instead of making green energy more cost effective, they seek to raise your family's heating, cooling and electricity bills by over 11%.
Carbon taxes are bad for the economy; driving up your energy costs, killing millions of jobs and sending businesses overseas.
Carbon taxes, money out of your wallet, would grow government by more than $1 trillion. That growth in government won’t go towards clean energy; it’ll merely allow government to waste even more of your hard earned tax dollars.
Earlier this year, the Senate attempted to impose this burden on the American people. Unfortunately, Senator Kay Hagan refused to block the carbon tax. This is a destructive policy, and it needs to be stopped.
